Why do you like Playa de San Juan so much?
Because it is located in a perfect enclave? Because you enjoy good weather throughout the year? Because it has a huge 7 km beach of fine golden sand and crystal clear waters? Because in addition to the sea you can enjoy a great gastronomic offer on the beach in its restaurants and beach bars?
And all this a few kilometers from an urban center with the possibilities of commercial, cultural and leisure offer of a modern and cosmopolitan city like Alicante.
Playa de San Juan offers several areas to practice different sports, beach volleyball courts, soccer goals and other children's games. Diving lovers find different options, with half a dozen underwater routes and those who enjoy surfing also have their magic moment.
From a gastronomic point of view, don't leave without eating a Casa Julio rice or try Petimetre's bluefin tuna. In the afternoon, have a horchata in La Ibense and enjoy a wonderful sunset.
Very close to Playa de San Juan, just 10 minutes away is Alicante, a modern and cosmopolitan city with an old neighborhood often little known to the visitor that keeps secrets and can surprise. Clustered on the slopes of Mount Benacantill whose Castle of Santa Bárbara served as protection, is the old town where you can discover late Roman vestiges, remains of medieval walls and streets of the Modern Age.
If we talk about gastronomy, it should be noted that Alicante has been recognized as "the City of Rice", a place where you can taste the best rice in the country. If we visit any restaurant in the city, we will find on its menu a wide variety of dishes whose undisputed star is rice.
Sea dishes and mountain dishes, all of them have been made for years by Alicante families and continue to keep their essence intact . We invite you to explore the city through its flavors and to check the different nuances of each of the dishes. All this, accompanied with one of the wines with Denomination of Origin of Alicante.
